We are please to offer our Premium Grade Vegetable Tan Leather Hermann Oak Single Shoulder. Our Single Shoulders are cut from B Grade cowhides tanned in St. Lous Missouri, right here in the USA. Because this leather is B Grade you can expect very minimal imperfections. Our single shoulders are eight to nine ounce and are between four and six square foot in surface area.
The color may vary from monitor to monitor, but you can expect your leather to arrive with a honey color. This leather takes water and it dyes beautifully, or you can let it develop its natural patina as it ages. The grain on this leather has a firm hand that tools, carves, embosses, and stamps just fine.
Ideal for a whole range of finished leather goods such as gun holsters, knife sheaths, travel bags, cigar rolls, journals, wallets, saddle bags the only limit is your creativity. Hermann Oak believes in the tried and trued traditional art of tanning domestic steer. The process takes place in St. Louis Missouri and lasts over 30 days. Hermann Oak still uses rocking tanning pits, producing dense tight fiber that makes tooling leather a dream. Click on tour to watch a great video about how Hermann Oak tans leather.
